Kodak Black's sophomore album Dying to Live arrived Thursday night, delivering 16 tracks and guest appearances by Juice WRLD, Travis Scott, and Lil Pump. One of the most notable offerings was the ninth cut titled "Malcolm X.X.X.," which addressed the intersection of gun violence and racism.
X was tryna buy a bike and he got gunned down
X was tryna change his life, but he got burned down
X wasn't ridin' with no pipe so he got gunned down
Listen, do as I say, don't do as I do
Nine out of ten, it ain't gon' end up lookin' good for you
Kodak recently spoke about X during an interview on 103.5 The Beat. The "Zeze" rapper opened up about the conversations he had with his fellow Floridian, as well as the moment he learned about his murder.
The two had previously collaborated on "Roll in Peace," which appeared on Kodak's 2017 effort Project Baby 2.
